I also bookmarked your post. TOO holds a very special place for me -- the iconic Dead song, as I see it -- but I haven't really thought about its evolution (except vaguely and impressionistically), so that'll be interesting to read.

Ya know, I think one reason the troll threads grow (or metastasize) is that it's just so easy to make a quick remark -- in fact, that's part of the fun of coming around here (though not, in my view, in response to trolls, but to each his own) -- whereas a sensible response to a thoughtful post takes more than a nanosecond to formulate. And I think folks are a bit worn-down now, honestly ... I mean, geez, the country's heading over a cliff in a stupid game of chicken, the heat wave has undoubtedly sapped a lot of energy, and then folks check in at this place for a bit of relaxation and get stuck in what I believe SDH called the "retarded tornado." Lovely. Well, so it goes ...
things move in cycles. Or, as TOO would have it, circles.

Ladies(Ring+AR) thanks for your interest in the O1 thread,but I can't stress enough that it wasn't a woe is me type of thing ,just a poorly thought out statement on finding surprise in what subjects appeal to people on a music forum.I will say again that I am all for keeping this place exactly as it is,I would just hold out hope that we get some more people who are interested in having some spirited discussions on the bands music.
